A new improved version of Blindsight will be out this summer. New handlings that eliminate some of the weak point in the original. It has a new premise, with a new killer ending. This version is made for stage and uses 6 x 9 envelopes with color cards. This is a new routine and one I have been using with great success.

Coming this summer.

After doing this for years, I have really improved the handling and have a killer finish. What use to be the weakest finish has been revised to make it the strongest and most desired finish. Also this can be seen from the largest stages and has a touch that gets the whole audience involve. You guys are going to love this new version. The basic effect is still the same, but the prediction finishes has been changed to make them stronger and MORE visual to the audience.

Devin, give me a break man!

I'm trying to stop buying new effects so I can pay for a new sound set-up I just ordered.

I'm absolutely boracic (probably only means something to Brits)

Just received my shipment of these this morning now available. This is a fantastic improvement on the original which received rave reviews at Mindvention in 2006. The stage version offers a more immersible experience for the whole audience, and with the improved beginning and ending Blindsight 2 has certainly found a new direction and a much larger audience. - Thumbs up!!

Do I have perfect timing or what? I purchased the original version of Blindsight just last week and received it yesterday. Absolutely love the effect and look forward to checking out this updated version when I get the opportunity. I've also been interested in Four Told for quite some time.

Devin - for the sake of my bank account, please stop releasing effects! Smile

I understand your frustration Tony, but I have some bad news for you, Devin and I are releasing an amazing version of Four Told next month: The thread http://www.themagiccafe.com/forums/viewt......orum=218 It's super current, symbol friendly to sensitive groups, with two available versions one for stage, and one for strolling impromptu Mentalism. I developed the concept graphics and Devin has injected his out of the box mind, and honestly I'm quite proud to see the vision coming together. :o)

Great news, I love this effect.
Devin have to tell u, I used it for the first time 'out there' the other week. It was my first ever stage settings, it was at our magic societys new members event, I was last on..it was my last effect, I have put some twists and turns in it which involve the whole audeince at the start, also using a bit of bannachek with big colours on the que card but ie RED is written in green...I also get the whole auidence to close there eyes to 'see' the colour red...and more but I'm not giving it all away!!
Anyway got such a great reaction after, and a few of the small subulties you mention I have relised are so so important!
So thanks

Just got to get fore told right now!!

Well guys I have had this now for over 2 weeks and I apologize for the delay in posting a review. Let me get right to it. This effect has it all. It's very entertaining, creates mystery and suspense and is a lot of fun to perform. The prop (main one) is made very well. The other props are made of paper (envelops and color paper cards all made well as well). The instructions cover it all and answers all the questions. You will feel confident to perform this after you read the instructions and cover the material in practice runs. I performed this first for my wife and she absolutely enjoyed it especially the kicker ending. The audience participation in this effect is wonderful---THEY get to get it right and we all know audiences LOVE that. At the end of course YOU knew all along how things would turn out and you are able to prove it with a great final reveal! I recommend BlindSight2 very highly!


Good magic to all,

Doesn't this have the same ending as Blindsight 1.0? Is it just that the former weakest ending is now considered the strongest for stage or is there something new?

best,
Sean

I just have 2.0 and in fact I performed it tonight at a house party and it went over very well. I performed it by asking several members of the audience to participate. I explained that I had a way of showing them that I knew all along how this one would end. They "set aside" green and when I asked them to look at the prediction in that envelope they were shocked. It was a very strong ending. It was also fun to perform.


Good magic to all,

Still trying to ascertain if there's any difference between 2.0 and the original version other than the larger size and routining for stage use. Anyone actually have 2.0?

I have 2.0 but NOT the original. PM me with what the original effect was and I can tell you the difference. I will say 2.0 is fantastic.
